said by nukscull :Not really if you have a wishlist that says "hd movie", then it records a weeks worth of movies, then you just select the one you want, i have been doing this since the early replaytv days . said by DaveDude:
If you have a quad tuner , you could do that in a 2 weeks. 500 HD is not really alot.
No, 500GB isn't a lot if you record a whole bunch of things in 2 weeks. But what is the point?
Isn't it pointless if you can't watch everything you recorded? I assume you can't watch it all, since presumably you'd be recording TV shows that come on every week, and would never be able to catch up on all the shows. And while you are watching something, something else would be recording.
You want quad tuners so you can record when there are up to 4 shows on at the same time that you can't miss. You don't use quad tuners to record everything and then never have time to watch it.
I guess maybe some people plan their TV viewing for 3 or 4 years down the road.
"I'll record seasons 1, 2, and 3 of Breaking Bad, and watch them a couple of years from now while I'm recording seasons 4 and 5, and trying to catch up on American Idol seasons 9, 10, and 11."
